gifts for the students

Visitors arrived at the school on November 17th.  They included safari travelers and board members who were there to support the school and join in the 2nd Annual Feast: a celebration of another successful year at Iruri Primary School.

Beanie Babies and Hot wheels were handed out to one of the grade levels, along with dresses from Dress a Girl Around the World.


Activities this day included exchanging pen pal letters.  Sending mail through international mail is unreliable at best, so pen pal letters are carried back and forth with each visit to the school These boys wrote letters.  They are tri lingual: they speak and write Kikuyu, Swahili and English.

Catherine Survillas reported about the day: Suitcases loaded with school supplies, clothing for all ages, sports equipment donated by my travelers, Kate Sessions School and Victoria Pierscinski and lovely tops donated by Bob and Pam Schaecher from their company Amaya Textiles were brought for the students and families. Grade 7 girls proudly model their new tops.
